Chinese Silk Embroidery Rescue

Well what would you say if you found your girlfriend was sending this to reject heaven? I am guessing you would say "well in that case can I have it please"?  and so it came home with me and it is totally gorgeous, seemingly it came from China and it looks hand embroidered on silk. The details are just equisite, children flying kites, carrying a large carp, to many to mention so I will let you feast your eyes. I am now looking to find the right place to hang this little beauty. Lucky me

Beach Thistles (In the Hoop Embroidery)

I wanted to try out some ITH embroidery applique and came across PixieWillowPatterns on Etsy  where I found this lovely  applique design  for Beach Thistles. I made these into lavender sachets but you could make them into hand warmers if filled with crushed walnuts or flax. You can let your imagination go wild re which fabrics to use,  I choose to use wool, muslin, silk and cotton and added a couple of seed pearls on the leaf stems. Really easy to make and a delight to stitch.
